Jazz Currents

Ride the Jazz Currents. These currents flow back to the early sources of modern jazz and forward to the sounds that will shape the music of tomorrow. They are electric currents and acoustic. They flow in the mainstream and they skirt the edges. 

At the June 12 Jazz in June concert in Lincoln, Tom Ineck presented singer Jazzmeia Horn with the Jazz Journalists Association award for Up and Coming Musician of the Year. A day earlier, he interviewed Horn about her rising popularity, her Grammy-nominated debut recording, her desire to deliver a positive message in her music and much more.

The history of Kansas City Jazz is the subject of an essay by Tom Ineck in the Enclopedia of the Great Plains, edited by David J. Wishart and published in 2004 by the Center for Great Plains Studies at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
